West Indies fined for slow over rate

May 22, 2012 09:59 IST

West Indies captain Darren Sammy has been fined 80 percent of his match fee for his team's slow over rate during their five-wicket defeat by England in the first Test at Lord's, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Monday.

West Indies were ruled four overs short of their target, triggering a 40 percent fine for all the players in the team apart from the captain who must pay double under ICC rules.

If Sammy is found guilty of another over-rate offence in the next year, he will receive a one-match suspension.
